president obama needs to go right now. it reminds me of the stated reason that george w. bush didn't land in new orleans right after hurricane katrina. he didn't want to get in the way of some of the cleanup. of course that disaster response didn't go as well as it looks like president obama is handling the response happening this time. but there is the danger dealing with secret service logistics at a time when regular logistics, just living every day life, becomes incredibly hard. >> i think it's worth pointing out certainly the obama campaign probably didn't imagine the extent. warmth of the words that chris christie has for the president, but mitt romney held his disaster relief event in ohio yesterday. the question that dogged him that he would not answer was about fema. take a listen. >> governor, what should fema's role be? governor, would you eliminate fema if you were president? >> well, it's either 11 or 14 times, depending on whose count you believe. the campaign released a statement saying that romney would not abolish fema but, quote, governor romney believes that states shou
of the president obama has just a one-point lead among likely voters. three new swing state polls show the president still in the lead, although with a margin that is shrinking in florida, virginia and ohio. and instead of campaigning, the president went to the red cross in washington, d.c., yesterday. >> this is a tough time for a lot of people. millions of folks all across the eastern seaboard. but america is tougher. and we're tougher because we pull together, we leave nobody behind, we make sure that we respond as a nation and remind ourselves that whenever an american is in need, all of us stand together to make sure that we're providing the help that's necessary. >> mitt romney will resume a full campaign schedule today, stumping in florida. he held a disaster relief event yesterday in ohio. >> we've got people right now that are having some hard times because of this terrible hurricane and the storm that followed it, and your generosity will make a difference. so i want to thank you. >> i want to bring in usa today's washington bureau chief susan page. maureen dowd writes this t
on the economic and jobs front for the state of ohio. the issue, i think, for obama is that people are thinking about a lot more than just the economy and the automotive side specifically and, of course, the governor of ohio, john kasich, is tying to contribute anything that is positive to his administration as opposed to that of barack obama. >> that we have seen. jim, thank you so much. >> thank you. >>> an update now on sandy. the u.s. navy is helping with the cleanup of the jersey shore while more than 3 million people are still without power. anger is building at the gas pumps in new jersey. line res long. stations are running out of gas. in staten islands, residents are begging for help saying they have been forgotten. a special relief fund is being set up just for residents of the island. and transportation secretary ray la hood is heading to new jersey to talk to officials there about getting the transportation system back up and running. >>> time for the your business entrepreneur of the week. jess carney worked boston area renaissance fairs, haunted houses and nightclubs. he hopped se
states. barack obama has the lead in most of those states. i think he's been doing great job these past couple days of showing he, as the commander in chief, has a lot to do and he's been doing it. romney's problem is he doesn't really have a job in all this. >> steve, chip, thanks for sitting with us and watching this appearance by mitt romney. it's good see you guys. >> thank you. >> we are just a short time away from president obama's first campaign event today. this is a live look. green bay, wisconsin. president obama will also be in las vegas and colorado before heading to ohio tomorrow. we will have the president's appearance for you live. we'll be right back. i have a cold... i took dayquil, but i still have a runny nose.

voters and say donate to the red cross. i think obama campaign's said to the folks in these states. this is our chance to do that. they probably have enough money to deal with this. we learned in 2005 with katrina, if the federal response is sluggish or looks unprepared for this, that's a worse damage to the president than anything else, and i think that the president has to do this. he's canceled four events in four states over the next two days. right now he's scheduled to go to green bay at the end of the tuesday. we'll see if that happens. probably unlikely. he may start again on wednesday when he's supposed in ohio. >> although to his benefit you could argue in some of the key states, places like new york and new jersey and connecticut, they're very strong governors there who are experienced with this stuff and unlikely to fumble the response. we'll see how that goes. let's bring in congresswoman marcia blackburn, a republican from tennessee. what impact do you think this storm will have to the presidential race? >> i'm not certain that it's going to have any direct impact. i
and new york state which is seen as safe for obama. mainly for scheduling purposes, i wouldn't expect to see either romney or obama in new hampshire or virginia again, and here's the rule of thumb in this is that for the president, good government is good politics and it would have been counter productive if he was out at a rally today because would still be a storm backlash. these events that romney and paul ryan have dealing with storm relief, that is a compromise between having a formal campaign event and going, just canceling the whole day of events and it's a delicate line and everyone has to be treading this close to the election in the wake of such an enormous disaster. >> singing the president's praises and how he's handling this, his toughest critic governor chris christie, take a listen. >> he deserves great credit. yesterday, personally, three times, he gave me his number at the white house and told me to call him if i needed anything and he absolutely means it. >> so, perry, do you think this helps the president? he does have a real role here. mitt romney doesn't. >> i don
